It's just what I am saying - some technologies (as CAR) are used widely, 
some with the troubles (traffic-shaping, for example), some are dead 

Through - SMURF by OS-48? Let's the enemy try - OS-48 will not notice it 
at all. You can't generate such traffic by the simple way.

Anyway, no one answer to the initial question. I guess no one here use 
complex QoS features, except primitive (CAR, RED, WFQ) ones.
